Twelve Fingers

Today we have a guest blogger, Bill Tucker, writing about artist Twelve Fingers:

Twelve Fingers, aka Nathan Enkel, creates a world of monsters and people in everyday situations as well as visually descriptive worlds and bodies based on his current interests and feelings. The Toronto native is a student at OCAD and is continually developing this new world and works hard to share it. From pieces depicting heads vomiting clouds dashed with beautiful tones of water color, to paintings of monsters in full color spray painted glory. His characters are connected by a familiar bolt of lightening that floats above the monsters or humans heads.

Lisa Congdon

Lisa Congdon is a San Francisco based illustrator who didn’t begin making art until she was 33 years old. She is almost entirely self taught and sees this as an advantage, being able to work with her own sense of color, shape, and composition. I especially love the portraits of animals and people with random bursts of neon colors.

In addition to making art she also owns an art gallery and design-led shop called Rare Device in San Francisco. See more about her and her work on her website: www.lisacongdon.com

JennyBird Alcantara

Hailing from San Francisco, CA, illustrator JennyBird Alcantara “explores the complex interconnectedness of opposites as seen through the prism of myth, fable and fantasy.” Her work, dark and mysterious, includes figures from a long list of inspirations including “the flora and fauna of the natural world and freaks of nature, folk art, costuming, creepy religious statues and paintings, and objects out of place.”

The following images are select works of her oil paintings on wood. She also makes art dolls inspired by these paintings. To see more of her work visit her website at www.jennybirdart.com

About Us

Fill in the Blank Gallery was formed out of the desire to create a space where art can be presented, discussed, created, performed, written, shared, and taught on an accessible level. Our goal is to foster creativity in our community, which is so full of talent but perhaps lacking in creative outlets. Part artist collective, part gallery, we feature a wide range of artistic works each month including fine art, craft, film, and music.
